Get flood level information

Potential flooding can affect your development plans. So if you're developing or renovating a property, you'll need to get flood level information to determine whether your land is subject to flooding.

You may also need this information if you're buying or selling a property.

If you’re developing or renovating a property

If you’re developing or renovating a property, we can provide you with flood level information on request. We can also review any early plans you have and advise what amendments you may need to make if you're in a flood prone area. This will save you time and effort later if you need to apply to council for a permit.

If you're buying or selling a property

If you’re not developing a property, but want flood level information because you’re buying or selling a property, you can get either a flood level certificate, or a property information statement.

Property information statements contain the same information as a flood certificate but provide more detail. They may also be included within a vendor statement or Section 32 certificate for any property for sale.
